Tips, related cards, skills

Darkflare Dragon

Summoning Darkflare Dragon quickly/easily will let you discard some cards from your hand and deck. Useful for setting up some combos like Red-Eyes Spirit, and also thinning your deck.

Dark Storm Dragon

If Kidmodo gets destroyed during your opponent's battle phase, you can special summon Darkstorm from your hand, and normal summon it on your next turn. This will enable his effect so you can destroy all spell/trap card your opponent controls.

Dust Knight

You can bring more Kidmodo in your deck, or use Dust Knight instead. Use the flip effect when it gets attacked instead of flip summoning this card, so you can still conduct your battle phase, or special summon other Dragon monsters.

Discarding Kidmodo Dragon

These cards have effects that can discard Kidmodo Dragon from your hand which will trigger its effect to special summon a Dragon-Type monster from your hand. Vanguard of the Dragon increases its own attack by discarding a Dragon-Type monster from your hand. Divine Dragon Apocralyph can send Kidmodo Dragon to the graveyard then it can recycle it back to your hand. By discarding a card from your hand Tribute to The Doomed can destroy 1 monster in the field.

Normal Dragons

Summoning high level normal Dragon-type monsters can be a good option as well. Combine this with Champion's Vigilance so you can get an early control over your opponent's actions.

People keep in mind that you cannot activate his effect if you battled the turn you want to activate him.

Kidmodo effects activate only when you didnt use YOUR Battle Phase,so YOU CAN'T:
* Activate it by suiciding you kidmodo against opp's mons
* Activate it after you finished you Battle Phase

Therefore, you can use it in your opp's Battle Phase
2yrs worth of blue keys and not a single drop of this card, are you 🔥ing kidding me with this 🔥 drop rate
Aww. Cute little hellspawn

Is good with Dust Knight if you don't have white stone of the ancients.

Are you sure that's what it said? Or was it something like missing the timing?

Or did you mean it simply doesn't activate at all?
So, if my kidmodo dragon and my blue dragon summoner go to the graveyard at the same time, why i can't fetch a dragon by bds effect and then summon it by kidmodo effect?

Because you can't activate an effect that will do nothing. You clearly didn't have a Dragon in your hand at the point you could activate Kidmodo Dragon.
Can it be used to summon rainbow dragon

You can't, BESD must be Special Summoned by Tributing BEUD and cannot be Special Summoned in any other way.

Were you trying to summon five headed poki draco? I don't know any cards that need this for fusion

I use kidmodo for B.Blader Dragon destroyer swordsman. but you need to normal summon kidmodo first before using it as fusion material.

Kidmodo doesn't need to be on the field. But you shouldn't be able to use its effect if you used it as a Fusion Material for Buster Blader since you Special Summoned a non-Dragon.
If it is tributed ..the effect triggers right..just double checking

His effect will activate when tributing as long it is the last monster tributing, i made the mistake of tributing it and nuit to summon a blue eyes, but since i tributed kidmodo first i got a notifivation in duel links that it took too long to activate its effect, im guessing that its because a second monster was sent to the grave before its effect activated
AI always let it face-up attack AI
